High School Co-Curriculars

High School Co-Curriculars

Why Now?

With big decisions ahead, high school students benefit from co-curriculars no matter which path they choose – pursuing post-secondary education or entering the workforce. Colleges want to see that prospective enrollees can effectively multi-task course work and outside activities. Employers are looking for candidates with life and leadership skills – two things co-curriculars definitely provide.

What’s the Value?

Studies show that participation in co-curriculars has a strong link to academic results. Other findings show:
  • Being passionately involved in a few select activities, community service and out-of-school experiences are among the top 10 things colleges are looking for when considering incoming freshmen
  • As Education-Portal.com reports, balancing co-curriculars with coursework shows colleges and employers that students can successfully multitask
